About the Aligning Forces for Quality Initiative and the Albuquerque Coalition for Healthcare Quality
Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) is an initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) that aims to bring those who give care, those who pay for care and those who receive care together to transform health care at a local level. AF4Q is RWJF’s signature effort to lift the overall quality of health care in targeted communities, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and provide models that will help inform regional and national efforts.
Albuquerque joined the AF4Q initiative in 2009 and is one of 16 communities – and the only one in the Southwest - participating. Locally, AF4Q is led by the Albuquerque Coalition for Healthcare Quality and administered by HealthInsight New Mexico. The Albuquerque Coalition is comprised of local health plans, hospitals, health care providers, consumers, and employers who are collectively working to improve the overall quality of health care in the community through public reporting of health care performance, health care quality improvement initiatives, reducing inequities in health care, and improving the payment system .
